Hillcrest Academy Secures a Decisive Victory Over the Falcons
Hillcrest Academy traveled to Letts Tuesday and completed a four game road swing with a decisive 54-24 victory over the Falcons. L-M defeated the Ravens early in the season and was without two keys players from that evening, and the Ravens took full advantage. After a low-scoring first quarter, which ended with Hillcrest up 6-4, the Ravens outscored the Falcons 23-9 in the second period to lead 29-13 at the half. Eli Ours drilled four threes and John Hughes scored eight in the period to lead the charge.
Coach Dwight Gingerich said, “It was good to see us break out and get that separation in the second quarter and then build on the lead and not let them back in. We defended much better than when we played them earlier, and it always helps to shoot the ball well.”
Hillcrest goes to 7-4 in conference play, 9-5 overall, and next plays Friday at home against Columbus.
